Missoula Police responded to a report of a man with an apparently self-inflicted and fatal gunshot wound to the head on Wednesday morning on the lawn outside the U.S. Bank Building just off Brooks Street in Missoula. An eyewitness reported to us that she saw the man lying on the grass and called 9-1-1 to report the incident, but police were already responding. An officer on the scene laid a blanket over the man’s body, and the county coroner will be called in to investigate.

We wish to respect the privacy of the individual involved, and will only update if information relevant to the public interest comes to light.

The Missoula Police Department says the investigation into the incident is underway.
